Glad to hear that.
I wonder if we could suffix the static libraries instead and
whether that would cause any problems...
Well, it certainly isn't trivial as it may sound, primarily due
to the CMake script complexity (and tedious testing with many
CMake configurations), so don't count on me adding that feature
in the near future. ;)
